t.p.

I overhead some people at the store today complaining about kids toilet papering their trees.
Personally - it's one of my favorite things this time of year.

Ferris mastered the toss and release at an early age. I used to supply him with several rolls each year. He also understood the importance of balance and placement. Select your site for the aesthetic. Be sure to get good coverage, but don't clump all in one tree.

Really what's not to love. The kids get to have fun - they feel like they are doing something mischievous. It's looks fabulous, and clean up is a breeze - just wait.

Wait! You advocate the wasting of paper products?

Ohhhh, the hypocrisy never ends.

Next thing you know you're going to advocate bacon as a vegetable.

lol@thEbalzie...bacon is a veggie...;-)

the last time I TP'd I was...oooh, 14? We hit a house in a cul-de-sac with lots of trees...plastered it...and took off...on the way home, we thot...hey, let's finish off the rolls at THIS house...which was ALL FINE AND GOOD until Mrs Fong came out and caught us and made us clean up every last little bit of crap in her yard---even the stuff we hadn't left there...that was enough to cure all of us from doing that ever again...
